The 2023 Colonel Reeves Stakes is a Group 3 1100m sprint held at Ascot Racecourse in Perth in mid-November each season.

The Colonel Reeves Stakes takes place alongside the Group 3 WA Champion Fillies Classic (1600m) and the Group 3 RJ Peters Stakes (1500m) during the early stages of the Perth Summer Racing Carnival, while the Listed $500,000 Placid Ark Stakes (1200m) is now the richest race on the card.

A quality sprint for horses aged three years and older, the $200,000 Colonel Reeves Stakes is a key lead-up to the following Saturday’s Group 1 $1.5 million Winterbottom Stakes (1200m). Barakey (2012) was the last sprinter to complete the Colonel Reeves Stakes – Winterbottom Stakes double.

More recently Celebrity Queen won the 2020 Colonel Reeves Stakes before a next-up second in the Winterbottom Stakes results. She further franked the Colonel Reeves Stakes form with a win in Melbourne’s Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) the following autumn.

The Colonel Reeves Stakes is one of the earlier races held during the Perth Festival of Racing. Often horses will target the Group 3 Asian Beau Stakes (1400m) held a fortnight earlier or the Group 3 Northerly Stakes (1400m) in late October on their way to the Colonel Reeves Stakes.

The 2021 Colonel Reeves Stakes winner Elite Street went on to run third next-up in that summer’s Winterbottom Stakes results with the Group 1 won by Graceful Girl who improved on her second in the Colonel Reeves.

The 2022 Colonel Reeves Stakes form was franked with the winner This’ll Testya also running third in the Winterbottom Stakes at her next start.

The 2023 Colonel Reeves Stakes ran on Saturday November 18, 2023 as a key lead-up to the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes and was won narrowly by the Lou Luciani-trained Hot Zed ($13).

Colonel Reeves Stakes History

The Colonel Reeves Stakes can trace its origins to 1984, when it was taken out by Heron Bridge. In 2005 the Colonel Reeves Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 status, which it retains today.

Usually held at Ascot Racecourse, for one year in 2003 the Colonel Reeves Stakes was run at Belmont Park. It wasn’t held in 1993 and 1995. In 1994, there were two editions of the race, in December and in January.

The race has been known by a few other names during its time, such as the WATC Bart Cummings Stakes and the Channel Nine Stakes.

Notable Colonel Reeves Stakes winners include Heron Bridge (1984, 1988), Scouts Honour (1998), Lady Belvedere (2001), Danny Beau (2008) and Barakey (2012). Notable losers include Hay List, who went into the 2009 Colonel Reeves Stakes as favourite on the back of eight straight victories and then missed out on the top three.
